Ordering Quarters, Halves, Whole Beef

What happens when we take your order for a quarter/half or whole beef?

When we take your order for a quarter/half or whole beef, we try to give you a date when it will go to the meat butcher.  When the steer goes to the butcher we will call you to provide you the official hang weight. The beef will then dry-age in a climate-controlled cooler for 1 t4o 21 days before being cut.  The reason it is dry-aged is that dry-aging helps tenderize the meat.  Cutting, packaging, and freezing takes another 2-3 days, so your order will be ready for pick up about three to four weeks after the date the animal went to the butcher.  We will also deliver if you're in the Greater Austin Texas area.

 Decisions, decisions...  

 If you want to order a quarter please read this.  If you are interested in half, or whole skip this paragraph:

If you ordered a quarter, what you will receive is commonly called a “split half.”  Because the cuts of meat in the front half differ dramatically from the back half, we evenly divide the cuts between the two to make it a fair offering.  This will somewhat limit how you can have your beef cut, as it is a compromise with the other customer, who will be sharing the half.  Again, this applies only to quarter orders.  If you ordered a half or whole beef, you won’t have to split the cuts. 

 What will your beef cost? 

The cost is $4.95/lb hanging weight including butcher processing.  The hanging weight is the weight of the carcass before it is processed into individual cuts.  Your take-home weight of meat will be about 30-40% less depending on how you have the meat cut.  

 Average hanging weights:

  •  Quarter:  160 lbs  = approximately $800
  •  Half: 325 lbs  = approximately $1600
  •  Whole:  650 lbs = approximately $3200

Chart Below can assist as a guide, but every harvest is different and should be used as an average.  Physical weight is different from hang weight.  When our beef is dry-aged for Quality and Taste.  This process can reduce physical beef weight by 30% to 40%
